Maya Minder is an ‘Eatartist’ working at the intersection of culinary production and critical thinking about global practices and entanglement of different food cultures. Her research trip to India is devoted to histories through food by its very materialistic and pragmatic approach to the daily practice of preparing, cooking, eating and cleaning, as inspired by Michel de Certeau’s “Practice of Everyday Life”.
“Aware of the plurality of different modernities in our world, I take inspiration from Dipesh Chakrabarty and Bruno Latour’s conversation on “We don’t live on the same Planet” and translate this via food cultures in a queer feminist approach of telling stories through commodity history,” says Maya.
